ATLANTA STAR and creator Donald Glover is to create a new animated series for Marvel’s ‘Deadpool’ with his brother Stephen Glover it has been reported.
The show, which is yet to be titled, has been given a straight-to-series order, with a 10-episode first season expected to debut in 2018.
Both Donald and Stephen, a staff writer on Atlanta, will serve as showrunners, executive producers and writers for untitled series.
“How much more fun could this be? Deadpool, Donald and FX – the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth,” Marvel’s Jeph Loeb, who is executive producing the show, said. “We’re thrilled that our relationship with FX that started with Legion continues with what is sure to be a groundbreaking show in adult animation.”
Donald is already set to join the Marvel universe as a star in Spider-Man: Homecoming, due in theaters this July.
Earlier this year, he also inked an overall production deal with FX Productions to develop new shows for the network and announced that the second season of his Golden Globe-winning Atlanta series will be delayed until 2018.
